Happy Thursday! Are you ready for the next challenge?? :) Michelle here today, bringing you the next challenge for March.
There are so many fun papers in our kits each month. Jessica puts some great patterns in them. When I build my LO, I usually start with a card stock base. I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to make an almost card stock free page. So I made two! :) One with each kit and add on. The add ons are sold out, but there are still kits available. Let's take a look..
I am very partial to the color navy. It is one of my favorite colors. And, pair it with either some shade of pink or green, and you have a great color combo. I love that lacy/doily patterned paper. But using it for a little boy's page, he may not appreciate it years to come. but a bit of it for a border is a little different. I did cut the center out. If you look real close you can see through and tell. ;) I love that denim sheet. It was the perfect paper to build my LO on of my son. To add some color and interest, I used the hexagon paper. The colors in the hex paper are also in his valentines. And with all the red and pink in the photo, a little pink just works. :) See.. you can use pink on a boys page. :) I layered it up with some embellies from the kit (and a few from last month's kit) to finish off my page.
Here is my next page.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE that background sheet. The subtle text print mixed with more hexagons and splashes of teal... swoon! Wanting to use it for my base, I pulled the other yellow sheets in the kit. I also dug through my bits of kits I have left and found some leftover Buttercup paper, and washi tape from a kit from last spring to pull in yet another yellow pattern and some of the teal. Cutting the "for the record" from the journal card sheet, adding a little stamping (yes! I stamped again! :) stamps from my stash ) a few enamel dots sprinkled around and a rub on from my stash finish off my page.
Notice on both pages, I only used cardstock to mat my photo and to cut my title? I love how all the pattern paper adds so much interest to my page, but the focus is still on my photos. Detail shots and story are on my blog.
So, now it is your turn. Create a card or a layout using just patterned paper, no or very minimal card stock like I did here. I can't wait to see what you create!!
